“Homey hospitality”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Carraig Gorm is an oasis of warmth and hospitality. This is true of both the accommodation and the hosts. The house has been lovingly and tastefully refurbished. The location lends itself to nature walks to the ocean or woods, and there are many interesting things and places within driving distance.
We went well equipped with wind and rain gear, instead we suffered sunburn!
My dream is to be there next year. Margot makes wonderful currant jams with she shared with us.

“Amazing accommodation”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is by far the best self-catering accommodation we’ve ever had in 4 decades! The house is spacious, warm, super well equipped beyond expectations, clean, immaculate, quiet and extremely cosy. You will sleep well there, and it’s ideal for a resting break away from it all in beautiful Donegal where there’s so much to see and do. The people are lovely and Margo is fun and extremely welcoming. It was a real pleasure to chat and she pays attention to detail. You are truly well looked after, including the scones and jam on your arrival! We wish we could have stayed longer and we hope to come back. Having experienced Margo’s house and first class customer service it’d be difficult for us entertain anything elsewhere that is less than this high standard of accommodation!

Highly recommended! Stay at Carraig Gorm to visit Donegal!

“Absolutely beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings ”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We LOVED this house. We stayed here with our two boys (8&6) for a wedding in the area for four nights. Margo had left us homemade scones and jam on our arrival which were amazing along with essentials such as tea and coffee...She couldn't do enough for us and was so lovely with our children! (She even helped by printing our boarding passes off for us as I broke my phone whilst there so was panicking about our flight home!) She was lovely and the house was like a home away from home. It had everything we could've wanted including some toys and dvds for the kids! The cottage is beautifully decorated being homely enough not to worry about keeping it immaculate as margo was only next door!!! The location is stunning with 360 views of countryside and a lovely kept pristine garden. Great location to explore - very central an near the main road by far enough up the track to feel like your in the middle of nowhere. You couldn't hear any traffic or cars or see anything except nature. Views were fantastic too. Not one fault for the place... Will definitely be looking at booking again..
Also rossnowlagh (where our friends got married) is a lovely place - we even learnt to surf!

“Charming, peaceful, wonderful place to relax!”

Carraig Gorm is a well kept, clean, beautiful place to relax and enjoy the scenery of northern Ireland. From the peaceful bleeting of the sheep to the beautiful view of the lake, this place provides a haven of tranquility. It was so wonderful to come home from a day of sight seeing and fix a quick meal in the fully appointed kitchen and sit in the little dining room with windows all around and relax. Margo, the owner, lives nearby and was always ready to help with any questions we had. I recommend this vacation rental very highly!!!
